    I worked at Creative Financial Staffing as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Will listen to you and understand your desired career goals. Will look for jobs which match your desires. I asked for something long term, with stability and my recruiter is still working to find something which meets my needs.

    Cons

    Not enough Human Resources jobs, but that's okay because there are Staff Accountant positions which utilize HR roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better perks to retain great employees

    Pros

    The Baltimore office provides solid accounting assignments. Contractor service is excellent. They often obtain good accounting assignments. CFS is well connected to the public accounting side of MacGladrey.

    Cons

    I have no negatives to report. Their values and culture reflect what I am looking for in an accounting group.

    Not the Best Experience

    I worked at Creative Financial Staffing full-time

    Pros

    Decent people to work with.

    Cons

    -Lower than average salaries for this type of role
    -Constant push for gathering company information from every source; leading candidates (who would not be considered staff-able) to believe we will help them find work
    -Posting ads for non-existent jobs in order to bring in and interview candidates to have 'oh hold' should something eventually arise.
    - Cold calling, all the time
    -Push to meet unattainable goals (connects, meetings, interviews and so on)
    -Micro-management at its finest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer market competitive salaries so people have incentive to stay. Consider that different markets have different challenges and that a 'one size fits all' attitude doesn't apply to every market. What works in one area for one person does not work for another person across the country.

    The Atlanta Office is the Worst Recruiting Company I have ever worked with

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Creative Financial Staffing full-time

    Pros

    None in Atlanta I am appalled by the way I have been treated by this group. I would not waste recommend anyone looking for a job use this company, for blows to self esteem, lack of professionalism, and untruthful business practices.

    Cons

    I personally went to visit them regarding some opportunities that fit my skill set. I sat with a Temp Manager, and 2 Permanent Managers. They submitted my resume for a permanent position, after 2 or three of my own personal follow ups, they proceeded to tell me that the CLIENT chose to go with other applicants that were more qualified. How this was possible and I held a certification in the subject matter and a Master's degree, I am unsure. The same week, I was contacted by a different recruiter for the same job. I told him that I had already been submitted. He felt I was well qualified and spoke with the client anyhow. The client was actually interested in meeting me, Creative Financial Staffing LIED and had decided themselves that I was not qualified for the position. CFS told the client that they had other qualified applicants and were not interested in allowing me to interview with the client, and then turned around and lied to me saying the client did not want to see me. I honestly feel like when I sat down with CFS for the initial face to face, they judged the way I looked, felt that I was younger than I actually am, and I am also an African American. I definitely feel like I was discriminated against.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know whats going on with your Atlanta recruiting office. They are very bad at following up with and being straight with their applicants. If they do not believe in an applicant, they will not work to find them a job, regardless of certifications and Master's degrees.
